Yes, it's time for another literary quiz inspired by Google Maps. The hero of a novel lived at a spot visible in the image above, north of the river that streams through the city. What is the name of this epic city, and what is the name of the novel? Here are the only clues you're going to get:
• The name of the street where this character lives is a religious pun.
• A cat lived there too, and was known to say "Mkgnao".
• This character is only slightly well known, but the novel is more famous than any of its characters.
If you think you know the answer, please post it as a comment, and as always I will not publish any of the comments until I reveal the answer, so as to not spoil the fun.
And, again as always: yes, at least one clue to the identity of this novel is contained within this text.
UPDATE: The answer has been posted here.
